    Hi all,

    I am in need of some accurate info related to the interchangability of front clip parts between 1951 Plymouth models. I have front end body damage on my 2 door club coupe (sedan) and I have located a donor car which is a business coupe. Can I use the Fenders (trim too), hood, grill, innerfenders, splash pan, bumpers....ie front clip parts.....from the business coup to replace my damaged club coupe parts? Also, will I be able to say my club coupe is all stock if I make the change.

    I have never worked on body panels before......just mechanical.

    Does anyone know this from experience or can you refer me to someone quick. If the donor car parts will work then I need to buy it asap. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thx Mike

    The front clip will interchange without a problem.

    Thx you very much for reply. Any idea if my 1950 inner fender wells for 1950 car will work with a 1951 fenders and hood. That is...are 1950 and 1951 inner fenderwells identical?
    My guess is no due to the different hood design between 1950 and 1951.

    They redesigned a lot of stuff for the '51 model year, mainly in the front clip and also in the cowl and windshield area making them a little wider so I would assume the inner fenders would be a little different and not interchangeable.

    The '50 parts are not useable on the '51 as suggested by daliant in the above post.

    The 49and 50 Plymouth parts are interchangeable and the 51 and 52 are interchangeable, but 49,50 will not fit 51,52. Plymouth was changed in 51.
